About me

Contacting a counsellor can be a daunting experience. I can offer an empathic and supportive place to explore whatever difficulties you may be experiencing.

My clients often come to me saying that they can’t understand why they feel the way they do, or even wonder if they ‘deserve’ counselling as surely others are worse off. My advice would be, that everyone is welcome and that doubt, confusion, despair and uncertainty are often better explored and shared in a supportive environment. Often, after an initial session, clients will report they feel better for having put into words what they have been keeping inside.

You can set the pace, whether you wish counselling to be only a few sessions, or something more open-ended, and I will endeavour to review our work and its progress to ensure it is meeting your needs.

I am currently offering counselling by video or telephone, with a return to in person sessions anticipated as soon as is feasible again.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
